Purpose of Athletics

The purpose of the Faith Christian Academy Sports Program is to partner with parents and students in a cooperative venture to provide an opportunity for Faith Christian Academy and home school students to participate in organized, competitive athletics and to use that competition to teach Christian-based principles that will encourage young people to strive for spiritual maturity in all areas of their lives.The FCA Knights is governed by an athletic committee approved by FCA Council which establishes rules, makes organizational decisions, and appoints athletic staff based upon an established standard of organization and Faith Christian Academy statement of faith.The Knights offer boys Varsity and Jr. High boys’ soccer, Varsity and Jr. High girls’ Volleyball in the fall. In the winter the Knights offer Varsity and Jr. High basketball for both girls and boys. In the spring we offer girls soccer and track for both boys and girls. Please contact the Athletic Director at knightsad@fcaclassical.com for more information about the Knights.

As home schooling continued to grow in the Kansas City area, more and more families were looking for athletic programs to give their children the opportunity to grow and compete in quality, Christ-centered sports programs. In 2000, a group of dedicated parents in the Northland launched Kansas City’s first competitive home school sports program, the Kansas City North Knights. In 2003, the Knights entered into an agreement with Faith Christian Academy to combine efforts and offer sports for both organizations.In March 2007 the Kansas City North Knights athletic program was formally merged with Faith Christian Academy. Home school athletes are still and will continue to be a vital part of the FCA Knights Athletic program.
